One should read UN Bound, by Neal Shusterman The background is interesting from itself with there being a war that had lasted for decades and schools different from the ones we know today with training in fighting and marksman skills added in the academics of the school. ¨UN Bound¨ is a story about a 16 year old girl, Brooklyn who gets targeted for standing up for herself, she ends up in a lot of fights. With a lot of testing in students mental and physical performance, if one were to test to low they would be sent to a concentration camp of some sorts also known as being unwinded. There are many interesting characters who have problems of their own which shows personal struggle for each individual, including Thor who is deaf and Brooklyn who is targeted for challenging the people who always win. Brooklyn says “Had the Plebe at the weapons cart giving her a bad rifle?¨(144), someone is trying to make her fail since her weapon might have been tampered, this exemplifies that she could possibly discover secrets about the unwind with the help of Thor that the school doesn't want her to know about. Overall the book is very competitive especially during school because of the civil war that is going on. This book is recommended if one likes futuristic backgrounds and complex characters with background stories for each individual.

I’m going to keep my review of “Unbound” short and sweet, as I don’t want to give away who has their own individual stories to those who are fans of the excellent “Unwind” dystology. If you aren’t a fan or haven’t read them, what are you doing here? Shoo. Go read them and then come back. Otherwise you won’t appreciate, much less understand, anything about this book. Highly recommended for fans of the “Unwind” series. You won’t be disappointed. This review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

About half way through the book the storied finally became interesting but do not be fooled by the description. There are no stories about whst happens to the main characters after they destroy proactive citizenry. You dont even find out if grace ever finds argent. They wasted time telling pointless stories in this book and left evrn more questions than before. Very disjointed also. The timeline jumps around like crazy and you have to figure out where the stories fit in the unwind universe. It would be nice if he actually wrote one more book like this one but provided more substance.
